New Year's in the Philippines . ..

Between Christmas and New Year's there was an evening in the nearby park where there was a display of  Lanterns.  They are like a kaleidoscope in that there is music playing and the lights 'dance' to the music.  It was fun to watch and it was not freezing cold . .  maybe around 70 degrees!  Here are some of the pictures I took of the lanterns.

The colors were beautiful and it was fun to watch the lights dance to the music!

New Year's is a bigger day than Christmas!  On Christmas most of the stores were just "business as usual'!  New Year's Eve brought another round of very loud fireworks . . . some of them sounded like bombs going off!

On New Year's Day, the ladies that clean for us invited us to their family gathering for dinner.
